Der Dokumentarfilm Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer aus dem Jahr 2012 beschreibt die Vorbereitungen und Durchführung des sogenannten „Punk−Gebetes“ der Aktivistinnen von Pussy Riot im Februar 2012 in Moskau und dokumentiert den Prozess gegen Marija Aljochina, Jekaterina Samuzewitsch und Nadeschda Tolokonnikowa.


In the first days of June we invite you on more time to have a delicious dinner and to watch a movie together at frei*raum (Innstraße 18-20).
After having a freshly prepared dinner we are going to wach the documentary “Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer” in its original language version (Russian/ english subtitles)

In February 2012 the feminist art collective Pussy Riot performed a 40 second “punk prayer” inside Russia’s main cathedral. This performance led to their arrest on charges of religious hatred and culminated in a trial that has reverberated around the world and transformed the face of Russian society forever. With unparalleled access and exclusive footage, this film tells the incredible story of three young women behind their now famous colourful balaclavas: Nadia, Masha and Katia.
Following the bizarre and intricate twists of the trial, we observe three young women fight back against a justice system that seems impervious to logic. From their family and friends we learn what transformed these women from political activists in to modern day icons. As Nadia, Masha and Katia defend their convictions from a cage inside the courtroom, those Pussy Riot members still at liberty plan new guerrilla performances and cultivate a protest movement across the globe.
